Designer Spotlight — Marta Mitchell Interior Design
Johnny and Karen Tart's Downtown Penthouse Perch
Greensboro, North Carolina
Welcome to Johnny and Karen Tart's downtown Greensboro, NC penthouse. Having always leaned towards traditional and transitional styles, this time they enlisted the help of Marta Mitchell Interior Design to achieve a sleeker, more contemporary vibe. The goal they presented to Marta was to create an urban feel that wasn't industrial.
They loved all of her ideas. "We liked what we saw on Marta Mitchell's website and we knew it was going to work," Karen and Johnny told O. Henry Magazine.
"Mitchell helped them to create a refuge anchored by blacks and grays, glass and iron", the O. Henry article said. "For warmth and verve, ambers and ochres play with blues and greens."
There are plenty of conversation pieces for visitors. Mitchell designed the dining chairs based on Charleston Forge's popular Emmitt Lounge Chair. Andrew Pearson Glass supplied the textured, fusion glass top for the dining table. The custom counterstools are also built by Charleston Forge and the bedroom features a Wilkes King Bed.
